Interior controls

Recommended Posts

Hello all, 

I've just bought my first capri, it's a 2.8 injection green on green . Carla plaid recaro interior, 4 speed . 

However I'm only 19 and I have a couple of questions, so excuse if they sound  stupid. 

In the interior on the dash to the left of the rev counter is a little twisty nob, my dad reckons it's dash brightness toggle?? Any ideas. 

There are two heater levers which slide left and right,  why is there two and what does each one do? 

Below the heater levers is 4 switches , I can assume the middle two are rear window wiper and rear window cleaner . The outer two I can only gues is something to do with front and rear demist. Which button does which ? 

Sorry for the stupid questions . 

Thank you 

Scott

You have a lever to change the temperature and the other changes the direction of air flow I.e from screen to floor . The switches are rear fog lamp , rear wiper, rear wash And  heated rear window

And the twisty knob is a dash dimmer as you suggested. :smile: 

 

Also...a green Capri Ghia in London?  Didn't buy it from Peckham did you? :biggrin:

Thanks for the info guys really appreciate that.  I dont think the dash dimmer is working so may have to get that looked into. I'm not sure if the heated rear windscreen is either . I noticed a couple of connections on either side of the window that weren't connected to anything.

Ahah no not peckham . A classic car dealer called k&h classics . Definitely worth checking them out. They have a few capris and alot of other fords. Would highly recommend. 

 

Cheers scott

Very jealous.  Our last Capri was destroyed in a fire (set deliberately) and our Ghia went to Ireland in the end.

Lovely cars. When I think about how I have away my B Reg 1.6 Laser, mineral on silver..5 speed box... Very good condition...Lovely. Bet it'd be worth a decent amount now.

 

How did I was...I just got bored of it and gave it away to some lad who'd just passed his test.
